(LANSING,MI.)–State Rep. Beau LaFave, of Iron Mountain, today applauded a new website that increases transparency by providing taxpayers easy access to information about salaries for every employee of the Michigan House of Representatives, including lawmakers.
LaFave said taxpayers rightfully demand accountability from state government.
“You deserve to know how your tax dollars are spent, and I want this office to be as open as possible,” LaFave said. “This website is one way we are working to make state government more accountable and transparent.”
